went on a bike ride to Northampton yesterday. stopped on the bridge over the CT river and stood there for about 45 minutes listening to some funkay tunes and letting my body be surrounded by the intense crossing winds.
locked my bike up in downtown, not realizing i had left the key back at home. so i went to the record store and laughed about it. went straight to “new arrivals” and found my first ever REAL bassnectar album: Vava Voom, in the flesh. $5 suckaaaa
called murph up and interrupted his sugar cookie-making to come scoop my key up so i can unlock my silly bike. he’s such a gem!
after losing myself in a prohemp store, i bump into my best friend Andrew and his girl. i got the BEST hug at that moment. we then walked over to our friend Corrina, who was selling art on the street with her two friends. we sat on the streets and ate candy and juggled and Corrina painted a sunset on my arm.
murph decided to take his motorcycle, which ended up leaking and running out of oil just as soon as he got into town. so a friendly stranger, who had let him know about the leaking, offered to drive him to the store to grab oil. and when the man dropped him off, Murph said thank you and the man replied with a huge smile, “just pay it forward, ok?”
the ride back was dark and magical. i attached my external speaker to my bag and jammed all the way home. i’m falling in love with The New Mastersounds. They’re just so tight and funktastic!
